    I'm not debating that except in the proper subforum. Your hatred is noted.

    Hmm. Could be interesting to see Israel in F-16s vs Egypt in F-16s. Who would would win? Oh yeah, "the strong win," Israel.

    Considering how much money we pump into Israel every year, how we'd leap at the drop of a hat to throw our military to their aid, of course they'd win. We've been doing all their fighting for them, directly or indirectly, since 1948.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    What what I've heard, the Israeli Air Force has taken the fighter jets they got from us and added newer advancements to them that they don't even let US military personnel see. Of course, its possibly just a rumor too.

    Uh, no. But this isn't the right forum to go into it. Still...

    Oh yeah. The Israelis have been quite inventive. They have a history of making improvements. The Kfir, for example, was the French Mirage 5 airframe with a J79 engine from an American F-4. Turned out to be a terrific airplane

    Re: Should we be sending F16 fighter planes to Egypt?

    No way should we be selling F-16's to Egypt.

    But if the Muslim Brotherhood remains in control in Egypt, President Obama is very likely to sign off on such an insane proposal.

    Lets get it straight, Obama's foreign policies have been a complete failure. Our allies including the UK no longer trust Obama (America) since Obama has thrown other American allies under the bus.

    The entire Middle East have become a basket case in the past four years under the Obama administration. One of the biggest mistakes of the Obama administration was supporting the "Arab Spring" that put the Muslim Brotherhood in power in Egypt and increased their power throughout the Middle East.

    Lets remember that the Egyptian military is not the Muslim Brotherhood and who along with past American administrations kept Mubarak in power for decades.

    The incompetent Obama administration and that includes the State Department should have told Mubarak that times have changed and it's time to step down. It's better that you put someone in control or the the Islamist fascist may end up in power.

    President Mubarak was a long time ally of America and protected Israels southern flank which helped keeping all out war from happening in the Middle East.

    Then you had Obama and Libya. Obama like usual ignored the Constitution and the law and violated the "War Powers Act." No problem with the Republicans, conservatives and neoconservatives, they have been saying for over thirty years that the "War Powers Act" was unconstitutional. Obama confirmed it and those who supported the "War Powers Act" (liberals) gave Obama a complete pass.

    What most Americans are unaware of, when Congress authorized G.W. Bush to invade Iraq, it scared the crap out of all our enemies including those Islamist countries who use to harbour and protect radical Islamist terrorist.

    Omar Qaddafi crapped his pants in 2003 and contacted the Bush administration that he was going to destroy his WMD stockpiles, dismantle his development on nukes and wanted to join America on it's war against Al Qaeda and the Taliban.

    It was the Qaddafi regime who took over enhanced interrogations of captured Al Qaeda and Taliban for the CIA when those in Congress got their panties all waded up over enhanced interrogation of those who want to kill us.

    I'm sure with Obama's approval of homosexual sodomy he got off when Qaddafi was captured, sodomised and murdered.

    Throughout 2012 President Obama claimed that Al Qaeda was on the run. He didn't lie, Al Qaeda was on the run during his four years in the White House. Running all over the Middle East and North Africa expanding their base of operations. Al Qaeda can now be found operating in ten countries that they had no precence in 2008 ! They are now back in Iraq !

    No way should we sell F-16's to Egypt as long as the Muslim Brotherhood has a presence of power in Egypt.

    How many Americans are even aware who the Muslim Brotherhood is ? How many know the connections of Hitler and Nazi Germany and the Muslim Brotherhood ? How many know that the Muslim Brotherhood has a S/S Regiment that fought under the German military in Europe during W W ll.
    What's with Barack Obama's infatuation with the Muslim Brotherhood ? Half of America really don't give a damn.
